It took only one day at college for life to throw a wrench in Alyssa's
plans. When she walks into the quirky used bookstore just off campus she
expects to find a few old paperbacks, not to lose her head over the
store's sexy owner - and Kyle is way out of her league, the kind of
sex-on-a-stick bad boy who would never give a girl like her a second
thought. Or would he? There's nothing Alyssa loves more than a good
challenge, and this one promises to be a lot more exciting than running
for class president. She just wants to make Kyle notice her, that's all -
to see her as a woman. How hard can that be? She'll stop before she
gets in over her head. But she can't get those smoldering brown eyes and
sinful smile out of her mind, and she keeps imagining his full, soft
lips hovering a breath away from her own.
Would kissing him really be so dangerous?
doesn't do sweet and innocent. He certainly doesn't mess with the kind
of college girls who will still be getting carded when they're forty.
But one look at Alyssa's smile is enough to shake him, and he can't seem
to make himself push her away. It's a mistake and he knows it - he's
too old for her, she's not remotely his type, and he's not into
relationships - but she's under his skin like no other woman has ever
managed before. He knows he can't have her, but maybe he can have just a
little taste? He can always stop, any time he wants to, before he gets
in too deep with her. What can it hurt? Just one kiss, and then he can
stop. Can't he?
